    I know there are a ton of games I should have for my SNES (which I just unpacked from it's bubble wrapping), but I'm wondering if you guys have any of the more obscure suggestions.

    Of course I know Earthbound, FFIII(VI), SMRPG, SMKart, etc etc etc, but can you suggest some lesser known SNES must-have-classics?

    Looking through my collection and the other "collection". Don't have any super underground titles, but maybe they are a little less known.

    B.O.B. - Platformer/Shooter
    Dragon Quest 5 - One of the best RPG's on the system
    E.V.O. The Search for Eden - Play trough the stages of evolution.
    Lost Vikings 1 & 2 - Really good puzzle platformers
    Secret of Evermore - RPG with realtime battle system. Overshadowed by Secret of Mana
    Shiren The Wanderer - Roguelike RPG.
    Sunset Riders - Shoot'em up similar to Contra set in the wild west. Fun in co-op
    Terranigma - Great realtime RPG
    Zombies Ate My Neighbours - Awesome co-op


    All the Mario and Donkey Kong Country are given and don't forget Super Castlevania IV.

    Good luck with that....

    One of my favorite SNES games is ActRaiser.

    The thing is, I probably will drop the cash on a copy of that game if I'm so inclined.

    And thanks for reminding me of ActRaiser. Off to ebay I go on that one.

    I've never played this one so that's another on my growing list.

    The good Battletoads was for NES/Game Boy. Not sure that the Battlemaniacs sequel was anything special.

    Super Bomberman 2 - A classic if you have 4 controllers via a multi-tap adapter.

    NBA JAM - Same.

    Shadowrun - it's a flawed western RPG with a cyberpunk theme but it's fun if you have a faq handy.

    Lots of great suggestions. Can anyone think of publishers that have since died? I want to look through their catalogs for some greats that haven't been brought into the modern downloadable era.

    To be honest I never really liked Punch-Out.

    Whaaaaat? Lol I loved that game. I even got to the secret circuit. That samurai kicked my ass, hitting you with a blunt staff isn't boxing.
